Comment on the proposed design for a Thompson Road realignment at an online open house through May 17.

Kenny Terrace will be connected to Saltzman and Thompson roads. The new road alignment will be a three-lane road (one travel lane in each direction and a center turn lane). Other improvements include:

  • Buffered bike lanes
  • Sidewalks
  • Improved street lighting

This project is funded through the MSTIP Bonding Cost-sharing Program for capacity and safety improvements in the North Bethany/Bonny Slope West area.

Comments on the alternatives will be accepted through May 17. Once an alternative is selected, the design will be further developed. A second open house is anticipated for fall. Construction is tentatively expected for 2021-2022.

To participate in the open house, visit the Thompson Road Open House or contact Capital Project Services at 503-846-7800 or

Washington County is committed to planning, building and maintaining a great transportation system, ensuring the safety of all roadway users, and operating the County roadway system in cost-effective and environmentally responsible manner.
